Our experience, research and expertise make us unparalleled experts on low carbon issues. We offer our clients and funding partners credibility as an independent authority.
Our focus on three areas which are key sources to attain the transition of a low carbon economy:
Energy efficiency is one of the most effective low cost ways of reducing carbon emissions. We aim to dramatically improve the carbon and energy efficiencies of national economies and businesses.
Innovation in new technologies, strategies and ideas are critical to meet emissions targets effectively. Our pursuit of innovation will also significantly reduce the cost of the transition to
a low carbon economy.
Consumer demand is the ultimate effective driver of global emissions. Our work aims to unlock demand for low carbon products and services.

2. Energy Efficiency & Carbon Management
Techniques for improving energy efficiency at the enterprise level are constantly expanding, from installing LED street and area lighting to the installation of renewable energy equipment. The benefits are real, and the costs do not need to be a barrier.
NVICO comprehensive energy services specialists can navigate customers through the financing and implementation of customized energy efficiency projects, as well as the operation and maintenance of new equipment, tapping the potential of energy conservation to generate cost savings. NVICO finds budget-neutral solutions that put the energy-efficient upgrades customers need within financial constrain.
Whether it is earning an ENERGY STAR for a building or plant's energy efficiency, receiving Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) certification or simply improving the bottom line through cost savings, NVICO can identify capital projects and operational modifications that can quickly reduce energy consumption and costs. As one of the largest independent energy efficiency companies and energy services providers, NVICO has the breadth and depth of technical expertise to objectively develop the energy management project that is best to each customer.
Carbon management is the use of technology to improve the energy performance of an organization. To be fully effective it needs to be an integral part of an organization's wider management processes - and any corporate social responsibility policy.
The management of carbon is often neglected, even though there is considerable potential to save energy and reduce costs. Rising energy prices, climate change legislation and the need to be environmentally responsible all require effective carbon management. Successful carbon management include:
> Senior management commitment - Without the support of senior managers, carbon management will falter and be marginalized. Senior managers need to be convinced of the business case for investing funds and staff time in managing energy.
> Energy policy - A written statement of senior management's commitment to managing energy and its environmental impacts. Often it forms part of a wider corporate social responsibility policy. For large organizations an energy policy should be no more than two pages long; a few paragraphs may be sufficient for smaller organizations.
> Energy strategy - A working document setting out how energy will be managed in an organization. It should contain an action plan of tasks, which will initially involve understanding the organization's current position and establishing the management framework. As the processes are established, the tasks should address the identification and implementation of specific energy saving projects.
A complete and effective energy strategy will address the following aspects:
- Organizing roles and responsibilities and ensuring there are sufficient resources available.
- Compliance with energy and climate change regulations is required of businesses and the public sector.
- Investment in projects will be needed to take full advantage of cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities.
- Procurement of buildings, equipment and services should take due account of the implications for energy efficiency and energy related costs.
